Extreme Sets
Posted by: Casimir at 9:46 pm on Saturday, May 6, 2017

About a year ago I started seeing solicitations for 6″-7″ scale cardboard backdrops and sets from Extreme-Sets. I was dubious at first. I’d seen similar things in the past, and they always fell short. Plus, most of the sets were $35 to $50, plus shipping. That’s a hefty price to ask for cardboard. And yet, […]

A Theory Awakens
Posted by: Casimir at 8:53 pm on Monday, December 28, 2015

Upon my second viewing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I was struck with an epiphany regarding the origins of the film’s protagonist, Rey. I’d like to document my theory, as I have not encountered it elsewhere. (I do not claim to be the only person to have thought of this, only that I have […]

A Note About DC Collectibles
Posted by: Casimir at 10:27 am on Sunday, January 11, 2015

Between Inanimate Objects, this blog, and my Facebook page, I’ve been pretty tough on toy companies over the years. I tend to call things as I see them, and usually what I see isn’t up to par. I’m pleased to say I’ve never been paid, bought off, or otherwise bribed to make comments positive or […]

Hey DC Collectibes, I Fixed Your Toys For You
Posted by: Casimir at 8:48 am on Saturday, December 13, 2014

I could not be more excited by DC Collectibles new line of animated style BTAS and TNBA figures! THESE are the toys I’ve wanted for over 20 years! The first wave is out now. I hope to obtain my set very soon, and then maybe I can finally answer everyone who keeps asking my opinion […]

Unproduced Muppets and Sesame Street
Posted by: Casimir at 10:03 pm on Wednesday, August 20, 2014

For many action figure collectors, the former company Palisades holds a special place in our hearts. Palisades was a company that produced toys people actually wanted. They listened to fans, while staying true to their license holders. Their products were fun toys and works of art. Palisades was a company that cared at a time […]

Powers the Animated Series
Posted by: Casimir at 8:00 pm on Wednesday, January 1, 2014

I’ve enjoyed reading Powers by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming for many years. The thing that initially attracted me to it was Oeming’s early art, which was clearly influenced by Bruce Timm. I came for the art, but stayed for the story and characters. The book has had its ups and downs over […]

Teen Titans Found in the Wild
Posted by: Casimir at 11:03 pm on Friday, September 27, 2013

I recall reading that Jazwares was awarded the new Teen Titans Go license, but that was months ago. I had not heard or seen anything since. Imagine my surprise when I found these in the wild today. (That never happens in the internet age!) These were at the Frisco, Texas Toys R Us. The mini-figure […]

The Continuity of Green Lantern: The Animated Series
Posted by: Casimir at 5:50 pm on Sunday, July 28, 2013

Most of us accept that Green Lantern: The Animated Series is not in the same continuity as the previous “Timmverse” programs. I’m reasonably certain the producers have gone on record as saying so, though I can’t find a reference for that at the moment. Despite that, I think I may have found a way in […]

Inanimate Objects 10th Anniversary
Posted by: Casimir at 8:47 pm on Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Ten years. It’s been over ten years since Inanimate Objects launched. So much has changed in this world. And yet so much remains constant. I’ve been customizing figures and toys, in one form or another, all my life. When I was a kid my dad would help me make Mark’s bird-a-rang things from Battle of […]

Playmobil Volcano and JLU
Posted by: Casimir at 2:20 pm on Sunday, June 9, 2013

Recently I posted about using some Playmobil sets as backdrops for JLU figures. The scale is a little on the small side, but for purposes of photography, they’re fun. Having explored the Secret Agent Headquarters and the Bank, I now dive into the Playmobil Volcano. Like the others, it’s a great playset in and of […]
